Loved La Posta! Our driver from the airport told us it is his favorite restaurant in the city. It was very close to our hotel so we went our first night. Decor was beautiful, food was delicious, service was wonderful! We will return again and again!

We are here on our first night in Panama City. The best risotto I've ever had. Beautiful presentation and a West Indies sort of feel restaurant. Awesome food

Very good food, service and setting. Has it's own parking and valet. Price was high, but unlike competition, really worth it. Would highly recommend for a romantic or business dinner. A winner

Whenever we want a special night out in Panama we love to go to La Posta and we are never disappointed. Delicious food, incredible staff, beautiful ambience, you feel like in a beautiful mansion's dining room. Highly recommended, already looking forward to our next dinner there.

My wife and I have been eating at La Posta Restaurant just about every week for our "date night", practically since they opened, several years ago. This restaurant is my top pick in Panama City for overall food quality, service, and ambiance. The food is always consistently excellent, fresh, tasty, and amazing. The service is always first class, and it... More

Right around the corner (literally) from the Waldorf Astoria Panama. Lovely decor inside, pretty extensive menu. Upscale but not at all pretentious. Henry, the waiter, was the best--not to mention his recommendation to get the banana tart. I wish he could send me some in the United States.
